Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5.7 and Mac OS X – will no longer open

After upgrading Lightroom 5.6 to 5.7, it refused to open with the error:

  Library not loaded: @executable_path/../Frameworks/asneu.framework/versions/a/asneu


This problem stems from the fact that the system drive is a case sensitive file system; in a similar vein, we were recently unable to install Adobe CC on a similar system as it is also incompatible with a case sensitive file system. We fixed our Lightroom issue by changing the path from:


/Applications/Adobe Photoshop Lightroom




/Applications/Adobe Photoshop Lightroom


The above assumes a normal install to the /Applications directory. If you are game to try the change yourself, you make the change via Terminal:


cd /Applications/Adobe\ Photoshop\ Lightroom\

sudo mv Versions versions

cd versions

sudo mv A a


Now try and start Lightroom and you should be successful.
